When Brotus was surrendered to HSNT last year, our staff noticed he seemed to have pain in his rear leg that his previous owners didn't notice. After several treatment options didn't work out, it was decided Brotus needed to have one of his legs amputated. He went into foster care during recovery and wouldn't you know... As we were strategizing how to find him the perfect adoptive home, we received this email from his foster family: "We have some exciting news, we would like to ADOPT Brotus!!!! He is so sweet and such a good dog, so the thought of giving him back breaks our hearts!"
Brotus is now in his forever home and you can't wipe the smile off his face... or ours! This is why we do what we do. It can certainly be heartbreaking at times, but when we see happy endings like this, it's worth it all.
